A stunning lily with an amazing fragrance. It is a cross of the species Lilium nepalense, and Oriental Lily ‘Sande’. Lilium ‘African’ Lady’ has an intense perfume and lovely strong stems. The leaves are deep green and they grow alternately along the stem. The stems grow up to 100cm, but 80cm seems average.
Lilium ‘African Lady’ has large, deep, raspberry red flowers with an apricot edge. Each bloom stretches up to an impressive 25cm across.
Plant your Lilies in clumps for the best impact in the garden or pots. A humus rich, moist, well drained soil is ideal. Add some fertiliser to your lily bulbs each year to keep them blooming well. From planting they will take 13-14 weeks to flower.
